How to install it:

 

Install

Inside zip i see 2 folders SDK3x and SDK4x. Which version to use?

New facebook SDK (version 4) require PHP v.5.4 or greater.

If on your host you have PHP v.5.4 (or greater) then we recommend to use files from folder SDK4.

If you have and older version of PHP (older than 5.4) then use files from folder SDK3x.

-    After you decided what version you use upload the content of “SDKX/Opencart 1.5.1.x - 1.5.6.4” directory to the root directory of your OpenCart installation, preserving directory structure

SDKX = SDK4 or SDK3x (dependind if you have or not PHP 5.4 or greater)

Updating to version 2.x require to replace files and to grant again permissions. From Admin > Extensions > Module > Facebook Auto Post > press again button "Grant access or choose other page" 

We need a facebook application.

Facebook Step 1: Creating a Facebook Application:

Ex: if your store link is http://www.oc-extensions.com then in filed App domain add oc-extensions.com

Click "Add Platform" (see image above) and choose Website

Ex: if in config.php you have:
  • a) define("HTTP_SERVER", "http://www.oc-extensions.com") then in website URL option add: http://www.oc-extensions.com
  • b) define("HTTP_SERVER", "http://oc-extensions.com") then in website URL option add: http://oc-extensions.com
 
 
Don't forget to press "Save Changes", each time you change any option
 
From dashboard (left side menu) choose "Status & Review"
